Good growth in revenue in all business lines, both in France and international markets

VINCI’s revenue(1) amounted to €26 billion in 2006, up 10.7% against 2005. This increase was due mainly to internal growth in the Group’s business lines.

Outside France, revenue(1) was €8.8 billion (up 10.5%).

Based on actual data (3), 2006 net profit was €1,270 million, up 46% compared with the figure published in 2005 (€871 million). Despite the share capital increase in April 2006, earnings per share improved 24% to €5.55.

The rise in net profit reflects growth in operating profit, which is attributable to a higher level of business activity and to the good margins maintained by all business lines.

Net profit includes several non-recurring items (mainly the sale of non-strategic assets such as airport services) representing a net gain of €95 million.

Operating profit from ordinary activities by business line

Operating profit from ordinary activities (1) amounts to €2,669 million, up 13% against the 2005 figure. It includes €268 million of amortisation of the goodwill allocated to ASF concession contracts.

VINCI Concessions’ operating profit from ordinary activities increased more quickly than revenue, reflecting the excellent results achieved by ASF-Escota and Cofiroute. The business line’s contribution represented almost 60% of total operating profit from ordinary activities.

With strong growth in business volume in both France and international markets, VINCI Construction maintained a high level of profitability, improving during the second half.

Eurovia’s good performance reflects the benefits of the recovery programme implemented in some subsidiaries outside France, as well as brisk business in France.

VINCI Energies, with profitability of over 5%, recorded an overall good performance.

The holding companies’ operating profit includes the gain on the sale of a property complex in Nanterre.

Financing and balance sheet items

Pro forma cash flow from operations (1) increased 8% to €4 billion.

Concessions operations account for 66% of total pro forma cash flow from operations.

Growth investments in concessions amounted to €1.3 billion, of which €754 million at Cofiroute and €463 million at ASF and Escota.

The acquisition of 77% of ASF represented an investment of €9.1 billion, of which €3 billion financed by an increase in equity (€0.5 billion issue of perpetual subordinated bonds in February 2006 and a €2.5 billion share capital increase in April 2006).

Following these transactions, net financial debt amounted to €14.8 billion at 31 December 2006, compared with €1.6 billion at 31 December 2005. It includes the ASF group’s debt of almost €8 billion.

Capital employed at the end of 2006 represents €26.1 billion, compared with €8.5 billion the previous year before acquiring control of ASF. The Concessions business line now accounts for virtually all of the capital employed, reflecting VINCI’s new financial profile.

Parent company results

Parent company net profit amounted to €1,435 million in 2006, as against €716 million in 2005.

Dividend

The Board of Directors has decided to propose a dividend of €2.65 per share, representing an increase of 33% over the previous year’s dividend, to the Shareholders Meeting.

If approved, given the interim dividend of €0.85 paid in December, the final dividend payable on 14 May will be €1.80 per share.

Cofiroute

The Board of Directors approved the acquisition by VINCI of Eiffage’s 17.1% holding in Cofiroute.

This transaction, which increases VINCI’s holding in Cofiroute to 82.40%, is part of the Group’s strategy to expand in motorway concessions, which offer predictable revenue streams and interesting prospects for growth and synergies.

Composition of the Board of Directors

Noting the resignation of Mr Serge Michel from his role as Director, the Board thanked him for his personal contribution to the Group’s success and decided unanimously to appoint him Honourable Chairman of VINCI.

The Board of Directors also decided to co-opt Mr Jean-Bernard Levy, Chairman of the Management Board of Vivendi, to the VINCI Board.

Outlook for 2007

The substantial infrastructure needs in Europe and the increasing popularity of public-private partnerships as illustrated by the Group’s recent successes in France and Greece, confirm the relevance of the integrated construction and concession business model on which VINCI has based its growth plan.

The order book for construction activities remains at a very high level of almost €18 billion.

Within this favourable context, VINCI has good visibility of its business prospects and profit, which is expected to show further growth in 2007.

The Group is planning to hire 12,000 new employees in France under unlimited term contracts in 2007.

 

Note: VINCI’s published statutory consolidated financial statements at 31 December 2006 consolidate ASF from 10 March 2006, the date on which VINCI acquired control of ASF. Prior to that date, the statutory consolidated financial statements accounted for ASF at 23% using the equity method.

For comparison purposes, pro forma statements have been prepared restating the data presented in 2006 and 2005 based on full consolidation of ASF-Escota for both 2005 and 2006.

Moreover, the airport services operations, which were sold during the second half of 2006, are presented on a separate line in both the statutory and pro forma financial statements, in accordance with IFRS 5 Non-Current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations .
